"That's So Funny, Daddy!"

Today was kind of a boring day at home. I was waiting for a package to arrive from UPS so we read every book in the house, played every game, tried every puzzle, made some forts, built some bridges, ate some snacks, and watched some TV. Parker really likes Toopy and Binoo, so he was pretty psyched when I came across an episode today at around 11 am. If you're not familiar with Toopy and Binoo, here's a synopsis of the episode:

Toopy, a gigantic talking mouse with ADHD, decided he needed to wake up Binoo in the middle of night to go to some sort of event requiring formal wear and fancy shoes. Binoo, a little white cat who doesn't speak, happily jumps out of bed at what I assume is approximately 3 am, and tries on all kinds of wacky shoes that aren't really shoes until they find the right pair.

For some reason, Parker thought this was HILARIOUS. He really cracked up when Binoo tried on two cakes for shoes. Are cakes shoes? Nooooo! Do cakes go on your feet? NOOOO! Parker laughed and laughed, and even afterwards when I brought it up, he'd start giggling. Who knew cakes on your feet could be so funny? It's hilarious when he laughs at stuff on his own, though. It's also super cute when he says stuff like, "That's SOOO funny, Daddy!"

Haha, thanks anonymous person. I think the older articles might not be as good because I had no idea what we were doing with a little baby! So I was just like, "Uhhh.... he slept a lot today..." Now he says things and does lots of crazy things!
